On Southeastern routes, which covers Kent coastal towns such as Margate, up to four children can travel for £1 each when accompanied by at least one adult. This deal applies to all Off-Peak Single or Return tickets, as well as Advance Single tickets on any Southeastern route.

Grown-ups can head to Whitstable for £15 or Margate or Hastings for £20 with an Off-Peak Day Return ticket – available on Southeastern routes from London until 16th June 2019. Those travelling as a group could save as much as 34 per cent on off-peak tickets with the Trainline’s GroupSave.
